If you enjoyed The Oregon Trail, then you’ll love A Walk in the Woods.
“ If you enjoyed the humor and history of Bill Bryson's 'A Walk in the Woods' then you'll love Rinker Buck's amazing tale of the journey that he undertook, along with his hilarious brother, to travel the Oregon Trail as the pioneers once did.”Alex, Anderson's Bookshop
The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).
